Re: percussion back to flint ---help
First of all, is your rifle made by CVA? If so then you can NOT convert the percussion to flint. If not CVA then you need to determine is if your percussion lock was originally a flintlock lock. If not then you need to find a flintlock lock that is the same size as your lock. The second thing to determine is what type of breech plug is fitted to the barrel. If the breech plug has the nipple screwed into it then you have another problem that I can not answer and you should contact you local gunsmith for advice. If the barrel is drilled from the side and has a "drum" (per Track of the Wolf's catalog page 412) then you can remove the drum and install a flash hole liner. The flash hole liner plus a new flintlock lock are all that is usually needed to convert from percussion to flint.
